Former Badgers shine in Super Bowl XLVIII

Superbowl Badgers.

WKBT, News8000.com

It was only a few short years ago that Russell Wilson played at Camp Randall Stadium. While he fell just short of winning a Rose Bowl, Sunday, he became a Super Bowl champion.

Wilson went 18-25, throwing for 206 yards and two touchdowns. He is only the fifth quarterback ever to tally 200 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, and complete 70 percent of his passes in a Super Bowl win.

He's not the only Badger to have success on Super Sunday.

Chris Maragos had a tackle and nearly forced a fumble. O'Brien Schofield also tallied a tackle. (Ironically, he tackled Montee Ball.) And Seahawks Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell oversaw a unit that scored 48 points on the league's top defense.

Montee Ball had six carries and two receptions.
